Oregon's two largest colleges will resume, next Saturday, the
'traditional civil war which has been marked by a fall term dor
mancy since 1942. Webfeet will be the ‘ visiting firemen at that
time, subject to the duties and privileges implied therein.
We, of course, are convinced of our own supremacy—but so
are the Staters of theirs. As competitors, we hope to whale the
proverbial tar out of the Beavers. As guests, we have an acknow
ledged obligation. Courtesy, good sportsmanship, and fair play
are Boy Scout words—but worth remembering.
At Corvallis, this coming weekend will be Dad’s Weekend.
An informal dance in the Memorial Union has been planned for
after the game—with general invitation to ASUO members. Re

will be under critical observation. We admire ourselves and oui

1 fere's gaaul news. College women needn’t turn grey any more
at the prospect of being old maids.
A survey made by the Metropolitan Life Insurance company
proves that the smarter a woman becomes the more likely are
her chances to make a so-called "good match."
The study shows both men and women are likely to choose
males with schooling similar to their own. Almost half the col
lege men interviewed had married college women, and Only one
in sixteen had married a woman whose education had stopped
with grade school.
The fair sex did even better. More than half stated that they
had married college men.
The survey didn't go into the details on how to catch the male.

wherefores of the chase.—The DAILY ATI 1HXICM, "West

Telling the Editor
Since football is back on the
campus this year, we feel that a
certain problem involved in seat
ing arrangements at games should
be brought to the attention of the
student body at this time. It has
been the practice in the past for
various organizations to send in
dividuals from their group to all
games early, to reserve seats for
the rest of the members. At Sat
urday’s game 10 rows on the 50
yard line were reserved by 1:15
for those above-mentioned organi
zations. One row, thus reserved,
remained vacant throughout the
entire game. This system means
that all who do not belong to such
an organization, must take seats
at the top of the stadium, or the
less desirable seats further down
We submit that such a practice
sractice should be eliminated* and
that those who wish reserved
seats, should purchase them. Our
student body cards admit us to the
games on equal standing, that is,
every student has, theoretically at
least, an opportunity to sit where
be or she pleases. Last year the
same situation existed, and no
remedy was found. There was an
editorial written on the subject,
but commendable as it may have
been, it had little, if any, effect.
Anticipating the fallacious argu
ment that every organiaztion has
the same opportunity to save seats,
may we state that we object to
the saving of seats by any organi
zation, be it Greek or Independent.
We suggest that the students of
the University take concerted
action at the next game, and chose
at random, any vacant seat that
may exist at the time of arrival at

To the Editor:
Can it be that a member of the

simple as to say that the motiva

perform their acts of indecent
behavior was prompted by their
not being placed in the stands as
a unit; because they were not

The women dress up to go to
the games That is fine. But the
men, denied the right to associate
with the women, therefore not
having the incentive to dress up,
are rather haphazard about their
appearance. That is all right, too.
Anyone will tell you that the dress
of an individual has a definite re
sponse on his behavior. He is on
his toes and acts more dignified
when he is dressed up. And since
the men dont’ dress up, the seating
arrangement not demanding it, the
natural effect is that the quality
of their behavior is lower than it
ordinarily would be. And their
actions influenced the actions of

we may get a few good sides of

I think that we will still have to
look to the smaller and less well
known companies for the greater
supply of jazz. Small companies,
and I use the word in defference
to the Big Four, will continue to
give the Cats aftd Jammers their
kicks. Companies like Commodore,
and Blue Note, who were active
before the war, and those war ba
bies, such as Asch, National, Key
note, Black and White, Guild,
Apollo, Jewel, just to mention the
more prominent ones, will, I think,
continue to produce.
Already most of them have made
plans to enlarge their set-ups, and
procure their own pressing plants.
But the competition will be stiff
and most will probably falter. Es

at least on the jazz side, if not on
many other sides.

who haven't, here he is. His name
